Economic Assessment of Contingent Resources

Desire Petroleum plc (AIM:DES), the exploration company wholly focused on the North Falkland Basin, is pleased to provide an update on the economic assessment of the contingent resources established by the 14/15-4a discovery. These are based on a high-level development concept and economic review by Senergy (GB) Limited.

Desire share of Sea Lion (unrisked) at $85/bbl (NPV 10%) is estimated at $173 million

   --      Assuming Desire share of Sea Lion unit is 4% 
   --      Assuming 320 MMstb full-field case 

Desire share of adjacent discoveries (unrisked) at 85$/bbl (NPV 10%) is estimated at $727 million

   --      Assuming Casper and Casper South (Shona) development 
   --      Based on net Desire 2C resources from Senergy April 2012 CPR update 

Desire is currently evaluating the new 3D seismic data and when this is complete later in the year, a full CPR update will be published based on all prospects and discoveries. Initial indications for new prospectivity in the East Flank play fairway are encouraging, with confirmation of the potential of the Elaine fan and a major new fan system identified (Isobel). This confirms our view that there remains significant exploration potential in the basin. A technical and financial update presentation is available on the website on
